Pangolins are found naturally in tropical regions throughout Africa and Asia. The name, pangolin, comes from the Malay word, pengguling, meaning "something that rolls up". A pangolin has large keratin scales covering its skin, and is the only known mammal with this adaptation. Now you know! Very cool animal, sad to see them hunted to near extinction.

A Pangolin. Many types of Pangolin are threatened or near threatened. They are hunted and eaten in parts of Africa, and are a popular type of bush meat. They are also in great demand in China because their meat is considered a delicacy and some Chinese believe pangolin scales have medicinal qualities. Pangolin are illegally trafficked for food and folk medicine.   Hunting and deforestation has led to a large decrease in the numbers of pangolins.
